I will certainly be glad to help in any way I can with the autobiography3. You have, indeed, wonderful material. I am having the most interesting adventures with my brother4 here, exploring the Pueblo towns and re-discovering the cliff-dwellers. We are planning to go to the Moki snake dance, and we are going over to old Mexico5.
I can imagine how shocked and horrified everyone in New York6 must feel because of the Titanic disaster7. Even here in the desert it shakes me up a little. I am so sorry about poor Mr. Stead8.
The one book everybody is talking about in Nebraska9, Colorado10, New Mexico11 and Arizona12 is "The Iron Woman."13 They are piled up in the Santa Fe "Harvey Houses"14 and every brakeman owns a copy.
How splendid this part of the world is!Faithfully Willa Cather
